mini mum, those pages look great! I like the idea of picking a word to journal about.

Leather and Lace, that sketchbook is awesome! I have an elk hide sitting in my truck and seeing your book makes me want to go out in the cold and getting to see what I could come up with :0)

LFF- I love the page. All the layers look great and I LOVE bubble wrap printing. One of my favorite "stamps" is a block of wood that I clued bubble wrap onto one side, shelf liner on another side, and other random things to the remaining sides. Makes for some fun (and cheap) stamping! The colors are gorgeous.

yoopidou- She can be both serious and silly. I guess she moves less when in a serious mood and is easier for me to draw  Grin I hope that I can eventually just draw her from memory as I would love to draw a sleeping version of her without having to stare at her while she's sleeping.

I have been drawn (pun intended) to sketching lately. My favorite subject to try to capture on paper with pen or pencil is my 7 yo dd. Here are a few of my attempts.

The two drawings on the left page against the left edge are of her (from 2 nights ago). Top way left was first, then immediately after the bottom way left. The others are just random (starting with the eyes).


The picture on the right is from earlier today.

I know I have a ways to go, but for someone who believe that she couldn't draw for 30 of her 32 years, I am happy with my drawing level and I am so excited to see how far I can go.

I have more photos from this current altered journal over on my flicker site. http://www.flickr.com/photos/readysetjet/sets/72157632440729562/ (I use to know how to do the cool link to just one word thing, but I am out of practice and too tired to try and remember)

yoopidou- Your backyard looks fantastic! If I were to do a page like yours, it would show a brick wall :0)

Great job and I hope you feel better!

I love junk journals! I feel less pressured to make something "pretty" in a junk journal- anything goes.

great work!

I love all the different dresses. I always saved our dryer sheets (when we used them) and our color catchers cause I knew they would make cool art. I might see if I have enough to make an entire mini journal out of them.

Thanks for the idea Smmarrt!

teag- Wow, that is fantastic! I love the monster. Might have to try drawing him myself!

Isn't it amazing how having kids can help you grow? I had the same voice in my head telling me I couldn't draw, that I wasn't creative (and also that I couldn't do math). Then one day it just hit me. Of course I can't do these things if I keep telling myself I can't.

Since then, I have been proving to myself that I can do it, and I get better every time I try.

tinybits- those look good!

teag- I like how you draw people, especially the eyes. I really love your monster though. He is super cute. I get the fears thing, I did a page about fear last year, but I like the idea of the monster with the bubbles.

Smmarrt- Thanks!

I think the  more diversity we get to see in artistic type journals, the better!

I've been pretty busy lately in the craft room. Here is one spread I have finished. I have a few backgrounds I have started if you check out my photo hosting.
